Property Summary

A beautifully presented detached family home situated in an idyllic accessible rural village setting with versatile accommodation, South & West facing gardens & nearby country walks.





Property


An attractive detached house with stone and brick external elevations to the front under a clay tiled roof whilst the outside is rendered at the rear. Originally built as a country cottage thought to date back to the 18th Century, the property has been altered over the years and in recent times has been comprehensively refurbished and extended to a high standard to create a comfortable family home with a mix of both period character and modern fittings.

The accommodation is arranged over two levels and offers versatility as to how it can be enjoyed. On the ground floor this includes an entrance hall that leads to the spacious open plan light and airy hub-of-the-house kitchen/dining room which overlooks the garden and has been attractively fitted with wooden fronted units and traventine tiled flooring. The good-sized sitting room has a fireplace with a wood burning stove and wooden bressomer beam and a lobby linking with the family room which is currently being used as a work room. Also on this floor is a shower/cloakroom and a walk-in pantry leading to the utility room. Upstairs there are five bedrooms, two of which have en-suite shower rooms and a well-appointed family bathroom.



Outside

The house sits in a generous triangular shaped plot with the delightful gardens arranged in two areas to the South and West of the house. These are mainly laid to lawn with well stocked flower and shrub borders, ornamental trees, vegetable beds and lovely views across to the hillside opposite. Wooden gates open to the gravelled drive which offers ample parking and leads to the wooden clad garage and adjoining wood store.



Situation

The property is located in the small but pretty village of Monkton Deverill in the heart of the Deverill Valley, part of the West Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Meandering through the lovely rolling downland countryside of the valley are the upper reaches of the River Wylye whose chalk filtered clear waters are known for the quality of its trout fishing and gives its name to the Wylye Valley. There is a petrol station/shop and pub in the nearby village of Longbridge Deverill whilst Mere has good everyday shopping.

The towns of Bruton, Frome, Gillingham, Shaftesbury, Warminster and Wincanton all offer a wide choice of shopping and leisure amenities whilst the Roman city of Bath and medieval cathedral city of Salisbury offer more comprehensive shopping, hospital and cultural facilities. This is a lovely rural but not isolated setting with the A350 just a couple of miles away which links with the A303 and A36 trunk roads providing ready access to London (via the M3), the West Country and motorway network as well as to the South Coast. Mainline railway stations can be found at Gillingham, Warminster and Westbury. There are several excellent private and state schools in the area including Gillingham Secondary School, Kings Bruton, Sexeys, Port Regis, Sherborne, Downside, Dauntseys, Warminster and Clayesmore.

With miles of uninterrupted footpaths and bridleways, the area is ideal for walking and riding as well as other rural pursuits such as cycling, fishing and field sports. Racing is at Bath, Salisbury and Wincanton and there are golf courses at Warminster, Tollard Royal, Salisbury and Orchardleigh. Sailing is available at Shearwater on the edge of the Longleat estate, famous for its safari park, Elizabethan stately home and holiday centre. Other well-known visitor attractions close include the National Trust Gardens at Stourhead, Wilton House, Old Wardour Castle and the World Heritage prehistoric site at Stonehenge.
